Roundtable, the MoMath Math Teachers' Circle

Join the MoMath Roundtable! If you’re a K-6 educator who wants to enjoy or improve your relationship with math, don’t miss the next installation of the Math Teachers’ Circle at MoMath. Join us for an evening of creative math play and camaraderie. Educators of other grade levels are also welcome.

Musical Mathematics: Come explore the relationship between math and music! Pythagoras once said "There is geometry in the humming of the strings; there is music in the spacing of the spheres.” How do vibrating strings and simple ratios inform the Western musical tradition? Is it possible to perfectly tune an instrument using simple ratios? How do the natural frequencies of objects lead to the development of new musical instruments? Join Paul Gallagher from MIT in this mathematical and musical adventure.

While Roundtable targets elementary school educators, the sessions are not tied to school curriculum or grade levels and all educators are welcome to attend. Registration includes a pizza dinner.
